Simon’s Birth Story

Little Simon Earl entered the world on Thanksgiving Day.

He hasn’t even been with us a full two weeks but, already, I can’t remember our lives without him. He has brought us joy beyond measure and I feel so lucky to be his mama. While I can’t say that our family is complete, I can tell you that it feels more whole and that is such a wonderful feeling.

In the past week I have drafted and deleted his birth story over and over. For some reason, the words never seem quite right, the details suddenly seem unimportant. So, instead, I’ve decided to give you the photo edition of his birth story (no gory shots, promise) and answer the most asked questions quickly at the end.

  1. Tash I love how elegant and adorable you look even as you’re sitting in the waiting room about to deliver a baby.

    We love you so much Simon Earl and we are so happy you’re here little man!!

  2. That is beautiful and he is just perfect OMG (I have a soft spot for boys since I had 4). Of course his Lyla is adorable and looks like she is gonna be a great big sister. You were always such a wonderful person for the short time we had you at CRT but there are some people you never forget and you were one of them. Your hubby seems awesome God has blessed you. Hope to get to visit you some day, but until then thanks for all your posts and letting us still be part of your life.
